As the most recent component of Walden, Spa Walden is an airy-yet-homey building that is available to the public as well as inn guests and Live Walden residents.

One of the biggest goals of the spa is to focus on the clients as much as possible. “Every staff member goes through the AAA Five Diamond training, and after our interview process, people don’t get hired unless they meet the majority of the prerequisites,” says Taylor. “You have to lose your ego to provide a good experience for clients.”

Along with one-on-one service, Spa Walden also offers special touches, such as customized music selections and MP3 docking stations in each room, providing clients with the ability to choose their own music for services. In the future, the spa plans on renovating its lower level to feature a state-of-the-art cardio and yoga space. “We would like to have a nice yoga studio and outdoor yoga space, and also create walking paths to make better use of our outdoor landscape,” says Taylor. Also in the plans is an indoor/outdoor Hungarian-style pool. “We have all the blueprints and the inspiration; we’re just waiting for the right time,” she concludes.
